Meet Illinois background check requirements


Get a screening program that goes beyond ISP 

Your organization deserves a background check better than the Illinois State Police Department (ISP) search. For more than 15 years, we’ve been partnering with Illinois youth sport and civic organizations to provide easy-to-manage background checks that help limit risk, secure data, and keep kids safe.

Protect your community


Why should Illinois organizations partner with NCSI?

More than 340 organizations in Illinois trust NCSI to keep their programs and communities safe. Our background checks can help you exceed the search parameters of ISP checks while providing your organization with a higher level of customer service. 

We can find out-of-state criminal records that would have been missed with an in-state only background search like ISP. And only specific crimes are reported in the fingerprint-only search that ISP uses—we utilize a social security number trace coupled with a county courthouse search (non-fingerprint) to reveal even more incidents. 

What our clients in Illinois have to say:

“The Oswegoland Park District has been using NCSI for all employee and volunteer background screenings since 2013. We submit approximately 450-500 new screening requests each year and NCSI has never failed to provide us with a timely and user-friendly experience. The NCSI team have always made themselves accessible for any problem-solving issues requiring assistance. We have been extremely pleased with the service and the accountability NCSI provides.”
